Margaret will share her amazing experiences of being a treasure hunter, and will show some of the artifacts she recovered.

The informal tour will also be a chance to ask Margaret questions, and hear more of her interesting and entertaining stories from her very adventurous life.

The Hope Diamond

Next Thursday, April 21 at 6:30pm, Hope Diamond: The Legendary History of a Cursed Gem, by Dr. Richard Kurin, the Smithsonian's Acting Provost/Under Secretary for Museums & Research. Dr. Kurin spent more than a decade on the trail of the legendary gem, the Hope diamond. But the 'curse' that surrounds the Hope diamond is only one small part of a long and illustrious story that moves between ancient religion and modern magic, royal power and class rivalry, revenge and greed. Since its discovery in 17th century India, the Hope diamond, a glimmering, deep blue gem weighing over 45 carats, has been shrouded in mystery and steeped intrigue. Dr. Kurin will discuss the impact the diamond has had across different cultures and societies throughout history. Attendees can join in the raffle to win a replica of the Hope diamond.

Each lecture will be held in the Eric A. Johnston Auditorium, $10 suggested donation. No reservation needed, first-come, first-served, limited to 180.
